aa,45,78,79,80,81,82,83,84,85,86,88,14
ab,22,80,99,56,84,85,86,89,12
ac,11,78,79,80,81,82,83,84,16,72,94,5,7,14
ad,58,78,79,80,81,82,83,84,85,86,88,14


i want to replace all de 45,51,78,80,90
45 = A1,A11
51 = A2,A22
78 = A3,A33
80 = A4,A44
90 = A5,A55

but maybe need to be more than 5 could be 5 or more


Output

aa,A1,A11,A2,79,A4,A44,81,82,83,84,85,86,88,14
ab,22,80,99,56,84,85,86,89,12
ac,11,A3,A33,79,A4,A44,81,82,83,84,16,72,94,5,7,14
ad,58,A3,A33,79,A4,A44,81,82,83,84,85,86,88,14

    Dim fileName As String

    fileName = "c:\someFile.txt"
    If Dir(fileName) <> "" Then
        ff = FreeFile
        Open fileName For Binary Access Read As #ff
        entireFile = Input(LOF(ff), ff)
        Close #ff
   
        entireFile = Replace(entireFile, "45", "A1,A11")
        entireFile = Replace(entireFile, "51", "A2,A22")
        entireFile = Replace(entireFile, "78", "A3,A33")
        entireFile = Replace(entireFile, "80", "A4,A44")
        entireFile = Replace(entireFile, "90", "A5,A55")
   
        ff = FreeFile
